Growing Self-Managed Teams

Keynote by:

Philipp Barthold – CTO, Mytheresa

One of the key components for a successful company is to have very successful and strong teams. Philipp Barthold talks about how to shape and build these teams, how to truly empower people and achieve high levels of accountability and engagement.
Philipp emphasizes that while we might have ideas about team engagement, this doesn’t necessarily translate into knowing how to create self-managing teams. In this keynote he compares the path to climbing different mountain ranges: from the easiest one – simple things like team identity and space distribution – to the world’s tallest mountain – making hard decisions, such as expelling team members or even dissolving the team itself.
